Biking is one of the most popular ways of exploring the beautiful landscapes and trails of the Adirondack Park, and this August, you'll have a chance to do so with all the comforts of a resort. That's right, Cycle Adirondacks is back for the third year in a row, and registration for this magical bike tour is open now.
Never heard of Cycle Adirondacks? Created in 2015 by the Wildlife Conservation Society, Cycle Adirondacks is a fully-supported, week-long road bike tour through the Adirondack Park.
The tour route changes each year in order to highlight a different region in the Adirondacks. For the 2017 Cycle Adirondacks, event organizers have switched up the format. Rather than feature overnight stops at each community, this year, there will be just three overnight stops - Schroon Lake, Keene Valley, and Saranac Lake - with two consecutive nights at each.
Some of the benefits of this new format include less packing and moving, more quiet roads, breathtaking scenery, additional off-bike activities, and a better community experience. The tour will begin in Schroon Lake, head toward Keene Valley, move on to Saranac Lake, and then end back in Schroon Lake.
What makes Cycle Adirondacks stand out from other bike tours is that riders get to enjoy all kinds of amenities along the way, such as hot showers, gourmet locally sourced dining, nightly entertainment, massage therapy, and much more.
If you'd like to experience Cycle Adirondacks later this year, then now is the time to register. The cost is $1,195 through February 15, $1,295 from February 16 through May 15, $1,395 from May 16 through August 20, and $795 for non-cycling companions & riders under 18. All of the amenities are included once you've registered.
Cycle Adirondacks will run from Saturday, August 19, 2017 through Friday, August 25, 2017.
